LIVE: Pope Francis presents Ratzinger Prize at the Vatican
Pope Francis will present the Ratzinger Prize to two recipients: philosopher Hanna-Barbara Gerl-Falkovitz and Old Testament theologian Ludger Schwienhorst-Schönberger. Both are from Germany.
The Pope will also present the award to last year's recipients: French philosopher Jean-Luc Marion and Australian theologian Tracey Rowland. They were unable to travel to Rome because of the pandemic.
The awards ceremony will begin at noon, (local time) in the Vatican's Clementine Hall.
Since 2011, the Ratzinger Prize has been awarded to scholars who have made meaningful contributions to theology.
